Randy, this is your time to shine!

I've heard that NOAA can't make a true estimate of the effects of this year's el nino until they get more water temp readings in November.

Did somebody say "El Nino?"

The winter outlook according to NOAA would lead us to believe there is a 50% or greater chance that our winter in the upper midwest will be warmer than normal. That outlook is based primarily on the developing El Nino. Like DH said, it'll depend a lot on how the el nino develops over the next couple months. Receiving the first snow and cold plunge earlier than normal is something that tends to happen frequently in el nino events, so for now things are falling into place, but...

While I believe their scientists know a whole lot more than I do about weather, I don't buy long range forecasts and I'm not sold that this year's ice fishing season will be a stinker.

Just my 2 cents.

I won't be too upset if we do have another January like last winter. That made for some good winter trout fishing conditions.
